Most Difficult School Grades

The Top Ten

1 7th grade

I hated 7th grade. I had to move out of my state which I'm not saying and the school I went to was the WORST! Thank GOD I only stayed there for a year and moved back to the school I went for 6th grade (which was great and I recently graduated 8th grade there). I didn't really like my teachers except four of them and the kids in my grade (well, girls because it was an all-girls school) were very annoying with some exceptions (the exceptions were kids I liked and had things in common with me but I didn't hang out with them because I never knew what they were talking about; I still regret that). I also had one of the worst teachers there. My dance teacher (yeah, dance was a mandatory class, sad). She laughed at me when I messed something up and almost poured water on me when I said (well kind of corrected) to her about the time when we were going to present or group choreographed dances. The good thing was that I never made any enemies in 7th grade. I had the most enemies in my 8th grade ...more - PhoenixAura81

Skipped this grade. So I don't care. But 8th grade is #3 so never mind.

I hated this grade because the people there are just the worst, including the teachers. And you have to do really hard projects.

In 6th grade I had NO homework, not any at all, I come back smacked with almost 3 pages of math a day. I thought that alone would have been one days worth of work. NO, on top of this I get dropped with essays and other homework from other classes. No teachers indicated this massive homework BOMB. Thanks a lot, overall this was just the worst grade ever.

2 11th grade

This is really should be number 1. 7th grade was cakewalk compared to this.

For me, it was relatively easy. Maybe because I took easier classes. I'd consider that grade easy-medium. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Stress for college starts picking up and you have to recover from all of you past mistakes throughout high school. Socially it's atrocious because all the students of your class are either suffering early senioritis or disgustingly stressed and competitive. It's also when you're almost an adult, but you still have to deal with being treated as a teenager who thinks they know everything but are actually too dumb to function. It's the worse year because of pressure academically: socially, and mentally.

3 8th grade

In Eighth Grade Me Had No Homework And Was The First Whole School Year In Private School Me Met A New Real Friend That Made It The Most Funnest Grade In School

My Brother is in 8th, and towards the middle of the year he was struggling to do his homework and took him around 2-3 hours.

Depression, social problems, and concepts that don't always make sense. By FAR the hardest grade.

Very stressful distracting horrible par of my life I'm glad it's over.

4 9th grade

It is so hard to adjust

Freshman are abused by older grades.

I’m in grade 9. There is a huge jump academically from grade 8 to grade 9.

Freshman year is basically every year in high school but the hardest thing for everybody is the transition because in our middle school you didn't have to do the homework and you would still pass ( I didn't do my homework at all for the last 5 months and ended up with a 3.4) and every year is the same amount of homework just that it's harder, and there are a lot more projects that you have to do

5 10th grade

I'm having constant projects and I haven't had a single break since the beginning of the year, I just finished a group project and so far we've had around 4 the entire year. I have tests in almost all of my classes. For some reason a book report in health which has no reason to be there. And constant tests and vocabulary. I didn't have a fall break, and I got sick due to staying up to a straight 24 hours with no break only doing homework. I then had an allergic reaction and this past thanksgiving break, I've had to read near 50+ pages every single day of this book for health.

Yes I'm in it now its badder then freshman year

I hate it so badly

I have to spend at least five hours doing homework every night and the weekends are even worse. I had a break off from school for one week and I spent the entire break doing homework. On each day of the break I worked for at least ten hours.

It sucks

I am not in the 12 grade yet

The hardest grade ever! So hard, I'm not even in this grade.

It seems hard, but I'm not that old.

7 6th grade

6th grade was hard because my school only gives scholarships to people who got all A+'s each semester in 3rd-5th grades. I am very smart for my age so I got accepted in, over the summer we had to read 200 books with 300 or more pages and if you did not read those books you would have to spend 8 hours after school cleaning the school from top to bottom. Luckily, I am quick reader, so I finished reading the books 2 weeks before school started. There is also an elementary school but it is not for the advanced kids, then if you get A+'s in all subjects in grades 3-5 you get to move on the middle school and high school. I went to Crockett Elementary School before middle school so I was not prepared for a 40,000 dollar a year school. Apparently the school that I went to in 6th grade checked every single kid in the county's grades when they were in 3rd grade just to see if they were in the running, then they would check the kids who got all A+'s in 3rd grade for each semester would check the ...more

The adjustment from elementary to middle was rough for me. Learning a new environment really took a long time to adjust to, let alone the incline of work.

Sixth grade was so ridiculously easy. I barely ever got homework and the tests and projects we had to do were a breeze and I got used to middle school after the first week.

Going from Elementary to Middle School is a big shift. In 5th grade, I had lots of friends and was quite popular. In 6th, I had a couple friends and was probably the least popular kid. I think the reason I wasn't popular or anything was because I hadn't "grown up." I wasn't using "language", I didn't have a phone, I hadn't had my period. 6th grade was the year where you only had a lot of friends if you have a good Instagram feed. Actually, that was all of Middle School.

8 5th grade

I am stuck in 5th grade. We got our second Semestral report cards. My mom was more happy then she had ever been. There are 3 semesters (Baseline, Midterm and Final) per school year. The final is going to be extremely hard and I don't know how I'm supposed to pass my final exam. We have like the New York state ELA and math assessments. I had to create a huge power-point about Chile and it has to be like 15 slides and it has to include transitions, word animations, a theme and like we have to insert a background image. If you think 5 paragraphs is too much..., In the beginning of the year I had to type a 745-word essay on MS word to go to middle school. My parents are going to meet my teachers in 2 days and I'm very nervous

This was hell

The last nine weeks are hard

9 3rd grade

I just hated it so much homework

Yes, 3rd grade was the hardest for me. back then in third grade, I was hanging with the wrong crowd, so that lowered my grades, and my mom would work late so I had to stay with my brother and at the time he was like 2 or 3, but thank God somehow I got a 4 on both reading and math

Gosh 3rd grade sucked - BreakFastBeast2005

Third grade was hard because we got drilled on our multiplication and division facts and we had to finish our test papers by 1 minute! In the end I did it! This was frustrating for me since I was used to getting all 100s 90s and 80s and I got a lot of 60s because of this! Also my teacher paid attention to every. tiny. detail. She gave me a 60 for forgetting to put a coma in four of my 1,000s! Everything else was correct! After that I checked my test papers 3 times before handing it in!

10 1st grade

Third graders suck

Third graders are too little to be mean


Stuff I learned in first grade:
A bunch of other pointless math problems
How to make an A
And of course, third graders are mean.

11 4th grade

4th grade sucked but I met the CUTEST boy ever! I might be 9 but it just sucked not all but mostly all the HOMEWORK

I was so sad when I was ending the 4th grade because my teacher was awesome.

I'm completed 5th grade and of all grades I finished this is hardest

Lol, I'm 10 and in 4th grade and I don't see what you guys are complaining about. My teacher is super nice and I have a lot of friends. We also get 3 recesses per day, or 4 if we're good. The work is sort of stressful, but I have an A in English, and I'm doing 5th grade math and have a B in it. (I'm trying to get it up though.) Plus, I get tons of extra credit points just for turning my homework in early, we have a month to finish it and I can finish it in 1 to 3 days. - Flowerfriend4407

12 Kindergarten

I thought it was hard because I had to do addition. - mistyglow

This is the only item that should be taken off this list. Kindergarten is the easiest grade. Well for me. - EpicJake

Difficult because they are so young and have short attention spans, but they are also amazing kids, But if you're not a very patient person this is not the grade for you

This shouldn't be on the list but I see what is meant. If you didn't go to pre school especially, being little and knowing nothing this can be tough.

13 13th grade

According to Wikipedia, a TOTALLY reliable source, 13th grade in some places is senior year of high school. - MaxAurelius

Guess you could call freshman year of college 13th Grade - PackFan2005

It's definitely hard to pass a grade that doesn't exist

So hard and an unlucky number.

2.4th grade

I voted this and how is KINDERGARTEN harder? - BlueBobYT

What this is the best grade is you have my teacher she adds fun stuff into school like pizza and movies etc. she makes school more fun than what you are thinking anyway we have M.M Monday's and F and F Friday's with math stuff I like it and instead of friday we take spelling tests on Thursday and her fridays are either boring finish work fridays or super fun fridays she is the best teacher to have - mathguy37

NaH it's SIMPLE...! - AlphaQ

It's only simple because you're like between 5th-College years. This is when we were back in this grade, so this grade isn't meant for you. - TeamRocket747

15 Preschool

All I remember was that the teacher was evil to me and the others (mostly me) because the kids were learning to speak and I was-it's long ago I cannot remember anything. - hoppingicon

No work and all play.
How about adding Recess on here.

I'm sure many people would rather be Preschool age again, and do the easiest studies ever. TOYS! No exams, no essays, no homework and no nightmare subjects that are too hard for you while the "know it alls" say "Its very important! Learn to get the best job or you will be going to McDonalds."

Yeah! it's so hard got a photo I'm painting and a girl next to me is doing something with the sand.
